What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you see the words Adele, secret, and Los Angeles in the same sentence?
 
If you thought The Artists Den, then you’re on to something!
 
Get ready for the latest secret show from Southwest’s partner The Artists Den this Friday, Feb. 25, at an amazing venue in LA. At this exclusive concert, Adele will wow guests with her powerful pipes, distinctive style, and chart-topping tunes.
 
Because Southwest knows how amazing this show is going to be, we want to send one winner and a guest to be among the select group to hear this private concert.
 
Not quite sure what The Artists Den is? Check out www.theartistsden.com to see a sampling of the talented artists and unique venues that have captivated audiences at previous shows.
 
Now that we have your attention, here’s how to enter the contest. To gain access to this concert, all you have to do is create a caption for this photo, which is from a past Artists Den concert and has a connection with this show. You can post your caption in the comments section below (make sure you are a registered blog user so we can email you if you win!) All blog comments must be approved by a moderator, so don't get discouraged if your comment doesn't show up right away.
 
If you’re more Twitter-inclined, you can tweet us your caption and use the hashtag #FirstLUV.
 
So, get those creative juices flowing and amaze us with your caption-writing skills.  We can’t promise you that you’ll be the “One and Only” entry, but we do promise that you’ll be “Chasing Pavement” to see Adele in a live show again.

On Friday, two lucky Southwest passengers will be chasing pavements to the nearest airport so they can move about the country to a secret LA concert venue where international recording superstar Adele will make them "feel my LUV!" They'll be sure to capture some hometown glory when they share the experience with their friends. Their luggage won't be rolling in the deep because Southwest doesn't give its customers the cold shoulder. Bags fly free!
